This term I am very grateful to have been selected to take part in the AA2A scheme at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge which allows me to use the facilities in a college for 100 hours. In exchange I'm happy to talk with and work alongside students whilst working on a specific project.

The project I am slowly working on is a series of drypoints with the working title 'scratch archive' there is the notion of 'the mercy of dna' around too but it is elusive so far.

Drawing sessions at the Museum of Archeology and Anthropology in Cambridge continue on the first saturday of each month except Febuary 2017 when it is on the 11th of Feb which is the second saturday.
